Has community transmission started in Delhi or not? Replying to this question, Health Minister Satyendar Jain said, "AIIMS Director Dr. Randeep Guleria has said that community transmission has begun in Delhi, but the central government has not yet accepted this.
We are not announcing it. Can, the Central Government has to decide this. "
He answered the journalists' questions and said that community transmission happens when we do not know the source of corona positive patients.
There are many people in Delhi, whose origin is unknown, where did they get this disease from.
When asked about the number of such patients, the Delhi Health Minister replied that half of Delhi's cases are such, whose source is unknown.
But he added together that only when the central government agrees, it will be believed that 'community transmission' has started.
Epidemic phase four
According to ICMR, there are four stages of the coronavirus outbreak.
In the first phase, they were found infected with the coronavirus, who came to India after getting infected from another country.
This stage has been crossed in India only in March when people from Italy, China, came to India and were found corona positive.
In the second phase, the infection spreads at the local level, but these are the people who came in contact with some infected person who returned after traveling abroad.
In the opinion of experts, this level has also crossed India.
Commercial flights from abroad have not arrived in the country since March 25.
The third and slightly more dangerous level is 'community transmission,' which the Indian government is concerned about.
The ICMR has also conducted tests in different parts of the country to gather information about it.
And the fourth stage occurs when the infection takes the form of a localized epidemic.
What does ICMR say?
ICMR Director General Balram Bhargava has told Hindustan newspaper in an interview that we have conducted a national serosurvey of more than 24000 persons to understand whether that 'community transmission' has taken place in the country.
According to him, all the tests have come, which ICMR is going to share this week.
Community transmission occurs when a person succumbs without coming into contact with a known infected person or traveling to a virus-infected country.
